Time Inc. Will Lay Off 700 After 5% Ad Decline

Time Warner’s Time Inc. will lay off up to 700 staffers out of just under 8,000 total as the publisher’s new chief struggles to transform famous titles and massive market share into a digital profit center.

The staff cuts will come sometime in the first quarter, said a person familiar with the company’s plans, and will be across the board — not just focused on editorial, where staffing has already been hard hit.

A Time Warner spokesman declined comment.
